Travel Norway. Experiences around Eidfjord in Hordaland County


The Kingdom of Norway, the Scandinavian country of mountains, glaciers and coastal fjords shares borders with Sweden, Finland, Russia and Denmark. It has an extensive coastline along the North Atlantic Ocean, the North Sea, and the Barents Sea.

Norge, in English Norway, with a population of about 5,000,000 has got 1,190 fjords. You know a fjord is one of these long, deep, narrow inlets of the sea, or a lake drain which extends inland in the form of a deep valley. When you fly into the capital Oslo what you see from above is a sea of fjords, rivers, lakes and pine trees. And what you see is what you get. When you pick up your rental car to go on a road trip through Norway, you drive for hours and seemingly endlessly through thick forests and along rivers, and fjord after fjord, after fjord. One can imagine that this land must be full of funny looking trolls living on trees and in between rocks and cliffs and all over Norway's wild and isolated mountainous plateaus.
